Chametz Shopping After Pesach

One may not eat or benefit from Chametz that was owned by a Jew over Pesach. This is a rabbinic injunction to dissuade someone from breaking the laws of Pesach and retaining ownership of their Chametz. 

One may purchase Chametz from the following stores:

1. Any store under reliable hashgacha
2. Chain Stores: Associated, BJ's, Costco, CVS, Duane Reade, Rite Aid, Sam's Club, Shoprite, Stop and Shop, Target, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods.
3. Local Stores: 7-11, Limelight, Dunkin Donuts
4. Amazon: One should make a reasonable effort to investigate whether or not the company supplying Amazon is Jewish or not.

Non-Chametz items may be purchased from any store, Jewish or non-Jewish owned.

Alcoholic beverages (excluding wine) may not be purchased from any Jewish-owned liquor store until after Shavuot.

Weekly Update from the President - April 2

Dear Kehila,

Moadim L'simcha! We hope that everyone is enjoying their Pesach and looking forward to the last days. For many this has been the first opportunity to spend time with family and friends after having been vaccinated. It has been a special Chag for our shul as some members have returned for the first time recently, and we've enjoyed a record number of attendees in our main sanctuary. 

Among the many Pesach lectures and programs at YIGN, we got to enjoy a highly informative discussion by Dr. Lawrence Schiffman about the Dead Sea Scrolls and most recent discoveries. It is fascinating to learn about the minor variations in Passover practices and teachings between the various ancient texts and our Tanach, such as who is eligible to eat the Korban Pesach and who is required to attend the Seder. If you missed the zoom lecture, a recording can be found here.

It's quite a contrast as we end the most joyous holiday of Pesach, and then so shortly after commemorate the loss of the Kedoshim in the Shoah. Please join us either in person or on Zoom next Wednesday at 8PM for our Yom HaShoah program featuring our own member Dr. Oscar Kranz in the telling of the incredible story of Kasiel Sender Kranz and Drieda Stelzer Kranz. 

Wishing everyone a wonderful chag, and we look forward to the safe return of all of our travelers from near and far.

Shabbat Shalom V'Chag Sameach,
David Basaleli
Young Israel of Great Neck
